So, because this is how I do things, I'm going to ask like this:
Among having just plain old fun using camstudio,
(yes I already got the "LET'S RECORD EVERYTHING!!! 8D" out of my system),
I've also decided to use it to record my "adventures" as a moderator on a Minecraft server (can't argue with a video!).
But when I watch the playback, the video looks like I recorded my screen while lagging horrendously, when Minecraft actually runs just fine for me (despite the server being in another country).
When I checked to see if it was just with Minecraft or not, it sort of was and sort of wasn't -- by which I mean that the video looked fine, though not completely smooth (yet not at all annoyingly choppy).
Now, I did start to check out some of the tutorials on the YouTube thing, but the ones I looked at didn't seem to have anything to do with video playback speeds. Maybe I just don't know how to look for the right videos. xD
So here's the two-part problem:
I don't understand technical jargon, and I want to know how to make the video look "smoother".
Yes, you have one of THOSE silly simple-terms-only alien people here. :P
For example: I only that fps is frames per second and that each image is a frame.
I'm not even sure what exactly a "frame" for an image is. xD
And is fps the same as frame rate? Because, you know, rate, speed, all that....
MILES PER HOUR!!! Yeah, I dunno either. XD
Anyway, I'm really sorry for the trouble, but could someone please tell me in simple normal weird person terms if there is a setting to fix it and if so how to make the video look smoother?
Also, while I'm at it:
when I have camstudio open it messes up my navigation on Minecraft.
I don't mean to say that it makes me go left when I press down, but it has the same effect as if the key "stuck", and sometimes it takes me multiple
tries of bashing the key to get it to "unstick"; I know it's camstudio because I don't have that problem when I don't have camstudio open.
And it happens sometimes (albeit much less) if I have camstudio open but not in use.
Is there something I can do to fix that?
